Ingredients Pineapple Sweet Bread:

  • 1 cup warm pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons margarine, softened
  • 4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt

Ingredients Macadamia Honey Butter:

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup salted margarine, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 macadamia nuts

Instructions Bread:

  1. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the warm pineapple juice and yeast. Mix together. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes. The mixture will become foamy.
  2. Add the sugar, eggs, and margarine into the bowl. Mix together.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt together. Add half the flour mixture to the sugar mixture.
  4. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the remaining flour into the bowl. Mix until the dough comes together.
  5. With a slightly damp towel, cover the bowl and let the dough rise. It will double in size in about an hour.
  6. On a clean and floured surface, place the dough and divide it into four sections.
  7. Form each section into balls.
  8. Place on a baking sheet and cut an “X” about 1/2-inch deep into the top of each ball.
  9. With a damp towel, cover the bowl and let rise for 45 minutes in the warmest place of your cooking space.
  10. After 30 minutes you can begin to preheat your oven to 375F.
  11. Bake the bread for 20-25 minutes. The bread will become golden brown.
  12. Serve warm and serve with the macadamia honey butter from the restaurant.
